The Runabout dropped out of warp just outside the outer perimeter of Starbase 257 and approached the station slowly at impulse. The pilot spun around in her chair and looked at one of the passengers, a very tall middle-aged man in a blue science uniform and two pips. His long dark hair was held together in a loose ponytail. “We’ve arrived, Lieutenant. You won’t be docking at the base with the rest of us right?” She asked “No I won’t, I’ll be transporting directly to the Brian A. Olinski” His Glaswegian accent wasn’t too thick to be understood. The pilot swerved the ship around until they had a visual on the colossal Ship “Now that is a big ship. Nearly a bloody kilometer long and 40 decks high. Gorgeous vessel for certain but far too big” The scientist said with a half-smile. A few minutes later the pilot spun towards him again “The Olinksi has cleared to you beam over, sir” The Scientist grabbed a grey duffel bag marked with a Starfleet Delta and threw it over his shoulder “Thanks for the lift Ensign, nice flying” He said as he stepped on the transporter pad and soon felt the familiar tingling as his form was torn apart and shot out as an energy beam across the emptiness of space.
Moments later he rematerialized on Deck 6 in transporter room 1. He took a moment to look around the room before stepping off the platform “Lieutenant Grey, your belongings have been sent to Cargo Bay one” The transporter Chief said “Thank you, laddie.” James Grey said with a friendly smile “I trust that all my bits are in the right place” He laughed at his own joke as he walked past the transporter panel.
The transporter officer smiled. He had heard that one so many times he had ceased to reply.
“Sir the Captain left orders for you to check in at the Bridge and then to his Ready Room.” The officer called after the Lt.
NE Transporter Dude
“Thanks” James called back as he left the room. He made a quick stop in his new quarters to throw his bag down before making his way to the bridge. A few minutes after he arrived on the bridge through the aft turbolift. He took a moment to look around the bridge, it was different than any bridge he was used to. He hadn’t served on a ship with fighter crafts before, he hadn’t even seen an active fighter since his early twenties. A CIC-connected ops station and a fleet command station, this was an entirely different beast. He walked past the science station NE and looked at the controls, a bigger ship meant bigger stations for everyone. He walked past the command chairs towards the ready room.
